Luke 5:17
17And it happened on one of the days, even He was teaching. And Pharisees and teachers of the Law were sitting by, who had come out of every village of Galilee and Judea and Jerusalem. And the power of the Lord was there, for the curing of them.
  • The power of the Lord was present to heal the Pharisees and teachers of the law, implying that they had need to be healed. But, the Pharisees preferred to sit around finding fault with Jesus. Healing is also a matter of the heart.
  • This background Scripture is found only in Luke's Gospel and it precedes the healing of the paralytic that is recorded in three Gospels, (Matthew, Mark and Luke).
